For the first three nights of our trip, we stayed at the Tulalip Resort Casino located about forty-five minutes to an hour north of downtown Seattle. Ev and I weren’t expecting anything, so we were pleasantly surprised with the accommodations.
First, the hotel room was very spacious. Compared to the small hotel rooms we are used to Hawaii, our hotel room at Tulalip easily fit the king sized bed and crib. I was also glad that the crib was already set up for us in the room when we arrived at the hotel room because it was already past Connor’s bedtime by the time we got to the Casino.
The bathroom was also quite impressive. On one side of the bathroom was double sink and shower and on the other side was a vanity area. The toilet was also in a separate room on the far side of the bathroom, adjacent to the shower. Ev really enjoyed the shower with the triple shower-heads. I thought it was unnecessary to have so many shower heads, but it was definitely unique.
My only complaint was that there was no refrigerator in the room. There was a mini bar, but it was one of those mini-refrigerators where you can’t put anything else in them. I wouldn’t normally have cared, but we had brought breast milk for Connor just in case Connor was hungry in an area not conducive to breastfeeding. We didn’t think it was worth spending the $30 a night to rent a refrigerator from the Casino just to save the relatively small amount of milk that we had packed. So, we stored the milk in a boatload of ice the first night and tried to feed most of it to Connor on the first day in Seattle and dumped the rest.
Overall, it was a nice hotel and I wouldn’t mind staying there again. Also, I’m not sure if they give this to all people who stay at there or if it was some deal with the tour group, but we also got free breakfasts for all three days we were there and a free buffet dinner, which was pretty awesome.
